In this late breaking bonus episode, we’re bringing you all the highlights from Sephoria’s first ever House of Beauty event in Los Angeles. Between the mad product reveals, customization stations and masterclasses from mega headliners, we had to drop two extra shows this week. In Part 1, we’re celebrating 20 years of Sephora in the U.S., bringing you behind-the-scenes on who we saw, what we experienced, and which products were worth the spend. In Part 2, we get up-close-and-personal with one of the event’s top speakers, celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin! (Stay tuned tomorrow as she gives us her top tips for using Dyson’s new, sold-out AirWrap innovation; what hair looks the trend-setter is loving now; and the plethora of products she has up her sleeve in the months to come.)

But first, in Part 1 of our Sephoria report, you’ll hear all about the larger-than-life installations, from a King Kong-sized jar of La Mer we encountered in the garden area of the House of Beauty, to Fenty Beauty’s glitter pool that left mass sparkle in areas Jill couldn’t even mention on air. Plus, find out which product reveals guests were privy to before anyone else in the world, like Fenty’s new Fairy Bomb, Chrissy Teigen’s cinnamon bun-scented holiday Glow Kitchen Kit in collaboration with Becca, and Atelier Cologne’s upcoming Pacific Lime fragrance.

Then, hear from Kim Kardashian’s personal makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic (aka @MakeupbyMario), who demo’d his “set up/set down” technique using Laura Mercier’s new translucent loose powder glow. And, find out which dollar store and drug store products Meghan Markle’s makeup artist Daniel Martin has stashed in his kit at all times.
Finally, get the glow down on all of the exclusive swag—with pricing—that could be in store should Sephoria return for a second season. Custom eyeshadow quads that blend four different brands, lipstick cases that can be customized with one of your favourite selfies, and makeup sponges that match your foundation. We’re spilling the tea on what really put the euphoria in Sephoria.
